Can we give them the bare minimum and get more rovers fans in?

We have to. Their lot can make a right racket, give them as few as we possibly can.

As usual weíll probably give them too many tickets as the club seems to think itís better to have plenty away fans , all that does is make us look a poor supported home side . I say keep them to the Absolute minimum and push our tickets . Stop pandering to the away team .

We got 7500 home fans in the last match. We need to give them 3800 tickets. We wonít sell 10.5k unless itís a tenner and not on tv

Don't want to give them nearly 4000 with noise them lot make, would like to think we could get 10,000 with playing a premiership team.

Are we even able/allowed to alter the away end configuration nowadays?

15% we have to give by fa rules. I'm not sure what the actual capacity is but own as we have lost seats, but based on 14500 we only need to give the, 2200.
I hope the club get this right. I can see there being a big demand for this game.
Of course a Friday or Monday night game will affect this.

If they take some of the sponsorship away that's covering a good chunk of seats Palace could have 3500 in the North stand alone. We filled the stadium in the championship that way no reason to not do it for Palace. I'd struggle to see anyone claim segregation would prevent this as it didn't only a few years ago. We'd then have around 11500 home tickets to sell

I think we should give them the usual 2,800-3,000(whatever it usually is) initial allocation,then make a decision depending on other factors when they are known,like ticket price,what day/time fixture is set,which games are on tv etc.If we are hopeful for over 10,000 Rovers,then don't give anymore to Palace.

If the club kep the tickets the same price as Oldham surely a sell out? The extra tv money would offset any shortfall in gate receipts. It's an extra game after all.
It would be a crying shame to see empty seats for this one. Such a historic game for the club and supporters.

Agreed.
So should the Palace game.
How many of us has seen a Rovers play in a R5 match?

No and No - most "casual" Fans would take the opprtunity to watch on TV at home or in Pub because a) its cheaper and b) without doubt you see more though the atmosphere is crap unless you are in a Pub throwing Beer up in the air (what a waste - Ian Dury was right)

Palace Fans would be tempted to do that especially if the game was on a challenging day i.e. Monday night

I have faith in SM and co to help the club get this right. A lot will hinge on tv I suppose, sadly.

It's an interesting point. Can a club say no to tv?
Our record in front of the cameras is not too great I seem to recall.

We have had some brilliant results in front of the cameras.
Not too many bad ones.

Friday would be the best scenario or maybe Saturday midday.

This will be on tv so no chance of Saturday 3pm

Iíd just love this to be a traditional 3pm sat kickoff time. I think a Monday would be a disaster

  No chance of that, I think Chelsea and Man U will be Friday night. If we are Thursday night it could be a poor crowd if televised.
  We will have to wait and see the TV schedule. We will not be the main draw.
